the best policy. He was liberally re

Falling hair Is not a trivial matter. It is cause for alarm. It tells of a
condition leading sooner or later to partial or total baldness. Hair that
comes out on the brush or comb is dead hair and it falls out because the
follicle Is diseased and the hair Is not being supplied with proper nour
ishment. Every hair that falls out is not replaced by a new one. If the
follicle is atrophied It will never grow another hair. The spot remains
bare and if further iocs is not checked the hair on the head becomes dis
tressingly thin or there may be total baldness.
In 99 instances out of a hundred, it is dandruff that causes the loss of
hair? Scientific research now develops the fact that the distressing ac
cumulation known as dandruff is due to a germ which burrows down into
the follicle and destroys the life of the hair. This is what makes the hair
There is but one way to overcome this trouble. An occasional sham
